Waited in line for 20 minutes. Ordered a variety of pastries - brownie, pistachio brioche, raspberry eclaire, a macaroon, and a chai. The brownie and brioche were excellent. The eclair and macaroon were okay. The chai was also excellent.
Was it worth the wait? Probably not. Did I enjoy the experience? Yes.

I've been to this location twice and the Vegas location once, but have gotten the flat iron steak all three times. It's the best steak I've ever eaten and it comes with a ton of fries. I also tried a beer that is exclusive to the Thomas Keller restaurants called Blue Apron Ale from Brooklyn Brewery. It was a brown Belgian style ale and you have to purchase the entire 750ml bottle for $24, which was fine with me. It was a delicious beer. I only wish it was sold in stores. And for dessert, we had a brownie dessert which consisted of 3 mini round brownies with melted chocolate inside and was served with cheesecake ice cream and caramel sauce. Amazing!! I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for a romantic evening as it's very loud, but is a great place for a fun evening out eating amazing food at one of the many wonderful restaurants in Yountville.

Great meal, they treated us really well on our 20th Anniversary. French food is not my thing but the drinks were good, the bread was obviously amazing and the french fry aoli sauce was amazing.

We grabbed a couple of sandwiches, a really yummy red/white/blue rice crispy square, and a couple of specialty coffees on our way between wineries. This is a busy place, and had a long lineup. Coffees were very good, sandwiches were good enough. Certainly a good place to grab a quick bite! Have to say, the baked goods looked SPECTACULAR.

Went to Bouchon for lunch on a Monday at the end of our vacation. The food was excellent. I had French Onion Soup and Steak Frites. French Onion Soup was delicious, just like you expect it to taste. The Steak Frites was cooked wonderfully (medium rare like requested) with a huge pat of herbed butter and mound of fries. And we had the recommended Bouchon dessert which was chocolate cake with port sauce and ice cream. Delicious!

Service was quite good. We had an infant and a toddler and they were very friendly to our children.

The only complaint- there seemed to be an unusual amount of flies in the restaurant. Really quite odd. They were buzzing a lot around and about our food.
